Windows are the eyes of a building, the architectural features that help define the style and importance of historic and new buildings alike. Windows perform critically important functions: daylighting, ventilation, comfort and protection. Their preservation or replacement in historic buildings excites more debate amongst practitioners than almost any other restoration treatment. Their design for additions and new construction raises an equal amount of contention!
The Traditional Building Conference and the United States National Park Service have joined again to convene the second Annual Windows Conference.
Windows: Old and New, Historic and Traditional creates a dialogue about repair, replacement and windows that convey a traditional character. Those who restore, replace and build new need to work collaboratively. The Traditional Building Windows Conference encourages the collaboration between builders, architects, building owners, and window suppliers. The construction industry is confronted with new laws concerning lead safety, storm-related damage safety, challenges to protect mid-century modern structures and energy codes. This conference brings together leading experts and practitioners from manufacturing, building trades and government to offer practical advice on, “what to do about the windows?”
